Links Are Dead - I Know

I keep getting Emails from people asking me to re-upload the links and music etc. I think people are just getting to those particular pages so are not reading the reason for the dead links.

So I am putting this in place so hopefully people will read it and stop Emailing me about it.

The reason the links are dead is that my account with Media Fire has been closed with all 11,000 files lost. That is why you can not download the things and No I can not re-upload them.

Eventually I will start doing that again when I have found something suitable. In the meantime this blog will be information only blog.

Thank you all

Depeche Mode - Get The Balance Right

'Get the Balance Right!' is the seventh single by Depeche Mode, originally released on 31 January 1983. It is the first Depeche Mode single with Alan Wilder as an official band member, and the first with a song written by both Martin Gore and Wilder - 'The Great Outdoors!'.

'Get the Balance Right!' was not included on the following album Construction Time Again, but does appear on the American compilation People Are People and the compilation The Singles 81-85.

The B-side is 'The Great Outdoors!', an instrumental written by Martin Gore and Alan Wilder. It was the first Depeche Mode song not to be played live.

Included on the 12" releases is 'Tora! Tora! Tora! (Live)', the first live song released on a Depeche Mode single. A limited edition of the single was released, which features more live tracks: 'My Secret Garden', 'See You', and 'Satellite'. It was the first DM single to have a Limited Edition.

In the music video Wilder lip-syncs the first lines of the song, even though Dave Gahan should be singing it. The band were too afraid to tell the director that Gahan was the lead singer. The music video is not commercially available.
